Strife and Serenity by Rose Legge

Strife and Serenity

Rose Legge

Fairplay, Colorado, USA

My approach is to portray a woman who is in a turbulent situation but dreams of a better life. Elements of both strife and serenity are in this piece, symbolized by a bare tree, a bird, etc. In the background I have drawn words freehand and added more layers of color. The face is complete and has a burka appliqued on to it.

(This quilt was destroyed in a house fire and is replicated here for the exhibit.)

Nations should invest more to educate and empower women.
